Jane Milton—divorced and deeply in debt—has reluctantly returned to the remote boarding school of her youth, this time to teach, but the long-buried secrets of her past will not be easy to escape. During their senior year, Jane and her friends Kat and Lissa obsessed over their English teacher, Miss Pymstead, convinced of her involvement in an unsolved murder. As the obsession escalated, it took a tragic turn. The only record of their misdeeds was a secret manuscript that disappeared without a trace—until the story resurfaces in an assignment turned in by Jane’s least favorite student. Jane scrambles to unravel the mysteries, but can she keep her own secrets buried as she unearths even darker, long-hidden truths?

    Jane Milton returns to her former boarding school, but not in happy mood. It is her last chance to survive. Financially in a dire position, she only got the post of an English teacher due to a friend’s interference. With the return to Grove Academy old memories arise a new, dark ones, which had been buried for 30 years never to pop up again. When she meets clever Kat in her class, her own time as a pupil seems to repeat itself and a long hidden manuscript might reveal more secrets than the ones which lead them to dispair so long ago. Nora Carroll’s novel is an interesting mixture of a grown-up woman who had high hopes and fell down deeply and a set of girls on the threshold to adulthood fighting between loyalty and dreams. The shift between the two time settings make it a vivid story where both plots are interestingsly interwoven and mysteries hidden in the connection. It is not a typical coming-of age or boarding school novel, it offers much more to detect and gives a lot of food for thought. Additionally, I liked Nora Carroll’s way of inserting poetry into the plot, which also reflects in her own use of language.
